"the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> good evening. and thanks to you at home for joining us this hour, where we have breaking news. breaking news about a story we have been covering in detail all this week, and frankly, for a lot longer than that. tonight for the first time, more than a year after its existence was first leaked to "the new york times" after rejecting multiple freedom of information act requests, which eventually became lawsuits demanding its release, after more than a year of refusing to officially either confirm or deny its existence, tonight the president of the united states has ordered release to congress his administration's legal reasoning for why the administration believ
the administration believes president obama has the power to order the killing of americans in counterterrorism strikes around the world. look at this. ever since anybody knew such a document existed, this is how the administration has been coping with requests to see this document. this is a letter from the justice department telling the aclu that they neither confirm nor deny the existence of the documents described in your request. quote, the fact -- excuse me -- the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such diagnostics is itself classified. that's what they've been saying for more than a year. but now as of tonight, the administration admitted that that legal reasoning memo exists. the associated press first breaking the news late tonight. nbc news confirming it. the president has directed the justice department to give the memo to the intelligence committees in congress. it is the first time that this will have been seen outside the administration itself. now, the administration has openly in speeches and in public comments asserted that it believes it is acting within the law whe

," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. president obama will speak in moments at newport news ship building in virginia. he's expected to warn about coming job losses if congress doesn't do something to head off the budget plan that kicks in the end of the week, the one that he agreed to, one that the republicans agreed to. both sides were in on it and now, they're like, oh, how did we get here? back in washington republicans are pointing out the president could have saved money by staying at home instead of going on the road to bring the message. the cost for air force one to fly to and from virginia is 180,000 an hour and you thought your air fare was expensive and you have to add in additional costs that include backup aircraft and food and incidentals when the president travels and nothing new. and as of all of that, the travel, 120 miles from andrews air force base to newport news, virginia and the g.o.p. is making a point, saying the distance from the white house to capitol hill is just 2.8 miles and he could use a walking stick. chris stirewalt host of power play on foxnews.com live. it's cheape
this is not the consolatory obama that came in january 2011 with that need that he knew he was chasing. that he was going to have to work together with the republicans. a somewhat toned down barack obama from the 2012 state of the union trying to talk to the voters, set the tone for the campaign. he wanted to deliver this. hey, guys, we have to do some of these votes. i wonder, they have a lot of what i would call very well pull tests. the issue that they hit on on education and the economy in particular, things like universal prepaid, raising the minimum wage, these are tangible items that average, middle-class families listening to this , speech. i have a feeling that could resonate very well. they accomplish what they wanted to do, which is talk about the economy in simpler terms over the head of washington. >> chuck todd, thank you for joining us. >> all right. >> joining us from san antonio, texas, the mayor of san antonio. mayor castro, thank you for joining us. >> let me ask you about the word comprehensive. we have all been if through watching the attempt by the government to reform immigration
this hour. president obama continues to warn the nation about upcoming spending cuts that could go into effect march 1st. in his weekly address to the nation he blamed republicans for the crisis. >> these cuts don't have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little compromise. unfortunately, it appears that republicans in congress have decided that instead of compromising, instead of asking anything of the wealthiest americans, they'd rather let these cuts fall squarely on the middle class. >> republican senator john hoven of north dakota delivered the weekly address and said congress has done its part. >> house republicans have already passed two bills to replace the president's sequester. so the question is why won't he work with with us? and the answer, quite simply, is because he wants higher taxes. >> republican governors meeting today in washington are asking the federal government to solve the spending crisis and not to add to the burden on the states. >> don't pass the balancing the federal budget on the backs of state governments because we're still re
'll take a fair and balanced look at it coming up. also new developments today with president obama's health care law. as questions come up about a company that has been awarded a 340 million dollar loan to set up these health insurance exchanges. despite having a history of consumer and regulatory complaints, i mean, lots of complaints, now, the house oversight committee started asking questions about the company and how exactly it got selected to participate in obamacare, given its checkered history. and that committee just told us within the hour, that it is now getting some responses to its inquirienquiries, we're not, but stu varney is on the fox business network and he's up to speed. so, stu, it just so happens that this company we're talking about, that's going to help, you know, we talk about the exchanges under obamacare and i refer to it like the expedia.com, you go online and say, this is how old i am, my medical history. what are my options? they say you can have this plan and this plan and under obamacare, the government is creating these supposedly nonprofit entities t
. >> and remember, president obama said this in the debate over health care. >> if you like your doctors, you'll be able to keep your doctor period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan period. no one will take it away no matter what. >> so, does this dramatic increase in the number of folks expected to lose their employer-based insurance suggest some other health care promises may not hold up? our panel is going to crunch the number in the next hour. all right, from alabama today we're getting new information about exactly what federal agents found when they stormed this underground survival bunker killing that kidnapping suspect, and rescuing the six-year-old captive in the blink of an eye and given everything they've turned up so far, it's nothing short of a miracle the way it all went down. fox's trace gallagher is live from the west coast news room, what a story, trace. it turns out that the rescue was much more dangerous than we originally knew. >> reporter: what we didn't realize ali, while the negotiations between the police and suspect were
with the president and his team and president obama said specifically in a debate with mitt romney that the republicans came up with this. woodward came out and said, that's absolutely false. when i was researching my book, my book months ago, all access pass to the white house, it was confirmed by many sources that this is the white house's brainchild. and now, jay carney, white house spokesman admitted that-- despite at that reporting the administration continues the charge against woodward. and issued dire warnings that the toll that all of this sequestration as its known will take on our economy and blaming the republicans every step of the way. they voted for it, too, by the way. yesterday, bob woodward again called the president's decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier due to the so-called cuts, a kind of madness. this is woodward criticizing the white house again. hours later, more fuel on the fire when mr. woodward accused of white house of threatening him for challenging the president's version of events. here he is on cnn. >> well, they're not happy at all and some pe
in any number of ways. obama administration now predicting some difficult circumstances, transportation secretary ray lahood saying air traffic controllers could be cut causing flight delays and the secretary of education saying the nation's school children will suffer because of strained finances in the state. listen.... >> means a lot more children will not get the kinds of services they need as many as 40,000 teachers could lose their jobs. >> reporter: meantime, plenty of political finger pointing. >> the reason there is no agreement is because there is no leadership from the president on actually recognizing what the problem is. >> why is it that we can't come to the table and agree what cuts need to happen? that is what we should be doing. we shouldn't be passing the blame to the executive branch or saying this is obama's sequester >> reporter: both sides are pessimistic about changes to the agreement. >> heather: with five days left, you can understand why. what are the nation's governors saying? >> they had a meeting over the wined and some went on the sunday talk shows to talk
, everybody. president obama expected to tout the health care law in his state of the union on tuesday, but john, you say this law isn't doing anything, but making america sicker? >> yeah, brenda. i mean, after years, literally the last three years, barack obama's been telling americans, you won't lose your doctor, if you like your health insurance, you can keep your health insurance, now post-election, surprise! 7 million americans, the numbers are going higher. the cbo reports the dollars continue to go higher and really what it comes down to, we cannot afford this. small businesses can't afford to keep medicating their people and keeping them insured and at the end of the day this is just another sign of big government coming in with big plans that us, the taxpayers, just can't afford. >> well, steve, does it matter that we're losing employer-based health care plans, if more people are actually getting covered? >> yes, exactly. this plan is going to cover just about everybody. it makes me difference whether they get their health insurance through an employer or whether they get it t
to acknowledge the controversial drone program when he became the obama administration's chief spokesperson. here's what he told msnbc. >> i think in many ways what the president has seen. i think what the president has seen is our denial of the existence of the program, when it's obviously happening, undermines the people's confidence overall in the decisions their government makes. >> the administration did not formally acknowledge the program that's terrorized countries like pakistan and yemen until last april. >>> everyone in the entertainment world and, of course, outside the entertainment world are talking about argo today. the surprise was not that the film won three, including best picture, it was the music celebrating the movies. here's nischelle turner with the highlights. >>> the oscars definitely had something for everyone. there was definitely music. there were some mishaps. there were lots of memorable moments. >> and now for the moment we have all been waiting for. >> first lady michelle obama gave the oscars a jolt of excitement and a huge surprise when she appeared from the white
continued and robust ly expanded under president obama. just last month in his second inaugural address president obama called for an inlasting p does not require perpetual war, but that is what this administration has largely institutionalized. this week, michael isikoff got a hold of a secret department of justice memo which outlines the legal basis for the administration to use legal force in count terrorism tactics even against american citizens. this is the provocation for use of force and one that trumps constitutional protections and it goes further that the military can engage in a preemptive attack even without clear evidence that a specific p attack is eminent. while we can be sure that a mere territorial dispute will not lead our troops back into the trenches burk the trenches, but the explanation of what constitutes a preemptive strike, we are left of asking, what will get us out of war? and joining us is roulajabril, and professor of law at syracuse university, and the chairman of the project against unjust crimes to end humanity, and the editor of "time" magazine which is

a bit about the obama administration's secret program of targeted killing of suspected terrorists. a small number of those targeted and killed have been american citizens while some unconfirmed number of those killed in yelm, pakistan and elsewhere have been innocent civilians, mothers, children, young and old men in the wrong place at the wrong time. they have implement add rigorous screening process at the white house deciding who ends up on the list. the president approaches the program with solemnity and care and the policy has been efficient and effective in decimating al qaeda and other terrorist groups. it's been said, quote, the enemy is really, really struggling. these atakes have produced the broadest, deepest, and most rapid reduction in al qaeda senior leadership that we've seen in several years. my partner michael isikoff outfound a memo that outlines why they believe they have the legal thoort authority to use force. at thursday's confirmation hearings for his nomination to head up the cia, white house counterterrorism director raised questions about the memo and the
for a top senator coming to the president's defense and c.i.a. nominee. he says the obama administration must be more forthcoming on benghazi or else. >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward with the c.i.a. directorship, hagel to be confirmed as secretary of defense until the white house gives us an accounting, did the president ever pick up the phone and call anyone into the libyan government to help these folks. what did the president do? >> gregg: thousands still without any power right now after the first blizzard of '13 and there is a powerful new winter weather system threaten threatening to be the unwanted sequel. we'll get the latest. >> heather: and caught on tape, mayhem at mardi gras. police are searching for a gunman that struck four people in the big easy. >> gregg: we begin with a fox news alert. awaiting a los angeles police department news conference. one of the largest manhunts in california history, still underway at this hour and police are setting up a task force to find the former police officer turned triple murder suspect who has evaded a massive law
policies of the obama administration, not just the secretive drone strike but using the right to use it against american citizens. this came up in 2007 when a drone strike killed awlaki and kahne, both u.s. citizens and neither charged with a crime. and we have extra judicial killings by the u.s. government without any judicial review and any right of the citizen to argue his or her case in court. these are very sticky issues. the legal basis for these strikes has been kept a secret by the obama administration. you may remember we had huge fights back in the bush era about the legal memos for enhanced interrogation tactics, the so-called torture memos. ultimately they became public. this is viewed by some as an analogy for that, secret memos upon which huge u.s. government policies, with grave consequences are being made. we got a copy of this memo, which is not the olc memo, the office of legal council memo but a white paper, 16 page white paper that mirrors and tracks it and gives us much more detail about what the legal basis for these strikes are. >> you draw a great analogy with
his case could mean for our labor laws. it's up "happening now." jon: president obama's choice to lead the ci elt a preparing for questions on capitol hill. i'm jon scott. >> position for top spy. jon: yes. jenna: how would you like that on a business card, jon scott, top spy. jon: it would be great only if i could do the job. jenna: we'll see if john brennan gets approved. hi, everybody, i'm jenna lee. the cia nominee will have to appear before the senate intelligence committee in a few hours. as lawmakers on the panel are received classified information about how the obama administration is justifying drone strikes own american terrorists overseas. brennan helped manage the drone program. he is likely going to be challenged on it today. lawmakers also expected to ask him about waterboarding and for what he knew about some high-profile national security leaks. a lot of big topics. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live from capitol hill with more. within those hallways, mike, what are you hearing about? what will really be the focus of this hearing? >> reporter: jenna,
for this one. >>> an about-face involving obama care. remember when religious groups were up in arms about a contraception mandate? we talked so much about that. suddenly now a compromise. how this impacts you. next. w! oil changes at meineke are always a great deal. then you're going to love this. right now they're only $14.95! wow-a grt deal just got a whole lot better. hurry. $14.95 won't last. >>> just in to me here at cnn, we're learning why an alaskan airlines pilot passed out midflight. the plane was taking off from los angeles last night. i want to go to renee more, in washington. renee, before we get to what doctors are saying about this, give met back story. >> that's right. you know, this is -- imagine being on this plane, so scary to hear the details here. the flight was midair when the pilot essentially passed out. there were 116 people on the plane and five crew members as well. again, that plane now because the pilot passed out had to make an emergency landing at portland international airport in oregon. at that point when that pilot passed out, we understand that the co-pil

could be achieved in the new obama administration, the second term you about it is ultimately the supreme leader who calls the shots. certainly the fact that iran told the u.n. nuclear watchdog last week it was going to be deploying a significant number of second generation centrifuges that can spin uranium three times as fast as ones currently used is not a sign of stepping back, jenna. it is certainly a sign of moving quickly along. there are some experts who think that actually more rigorous, intensive, sustained negotiations at this point will be more useful than sanctions. then there are different opinions at this point about this point of no return. some say it his iran has enough fissile materiel it could make a nuclear warhead. and that would be this summer by many estimates. others are saying that red line point is when iran can do that but do it in a way that is undetected by world powers so they won't really have an opportunity to respond in time. and some experts are frankly saying iran is already at this point is a nuclear power because it frankly does have the kn

[applause] [applause] jon: "happening now" at the white house president obama shake hands with a group of first responders that were brought in to serve as a backdrop to his speech railing about the possibility of the sequester that gigantic meat axe that will be swung at the federal budget especially on the pentagon in ten days or so march 1st. that's when it's scheduled to kick in. you heard the president railing about it there. i'm jon scott along with jenna lee. a.b. stoddard is associate editor and a columnist for "the hill." the president railed about congress and this terrible law that was passed without mentioning that it was a white house idea, right? >> right. it is an idea that originated in the white house, but republicans certainly voted for the budget control act in 2011, which included the sequester, because they too thought it could be reversed or undone or replaced. and we're looking 18 months later at -- ten days as you said, not enough time to change these cuts. there is an acceptance in washington in both parties that it's going to go through, and both
, by the obama administration, now what it says the memo justifies the targeted killing of an american who is considered a senior operational leader of al qaeda or an associated group, and who poses an imminent threat of violent attack against the united states. want to bring in halle goran any. a controversial issue, under president bush, now president obama. the fact that the government does have the power, and the authority, to kill an american overseas that's considered a threat. and how do they define that? >> that's the question because when you say imminent, it could be imminent in a few hours, in a few weeks, saying you can target a member of al qaeda, senior operational al qaeda leader, or associated forces. how are you defining associated forces? how are you defining the word imminent? how are you defining the word threat? all of these things are things that are open to interpretation and has civil liberties groups, as well, worried about what this means as far as the u.s., executive powers authority to decide, based on kind of unclear, sometimes, terms in terms how they're defin
